So, what is càramel colour?

Caramel color is a widely used food ingredient that adds a rich, dark hue to a variety of foods and beverages, including baked goods, soft drinks, and sauces. It is produced by heating a sugar source, such as corn syrup, until it reaches a high temperature, causing a chemical reaction known as caramelization. This reaction results in the formation of a complex mixture of compounds that give caramel color its characteristic hue and flavor. While caramel color is generally considered safe for consumption, some studies have suggested a potential link to certain health concerns, such as cancer, in high doses. As such, it is important to use caramel color in moderation and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
